The Researcher Mental Health Observatory (ReMO) COST Action (European Cooperation in Science and Technology), is a coordinated and evidence-based international networking action, aimed at promoting mental health skills and wellbeing within academia. At the moment of writing, the consortium already includes 29 member countries and 100+ leading researchers and practitioners. ReMO is a four year action that will build an Evidence Hub (E-HUB), a Training and Dialogue Network (TDN) and dissemination platform for institutional policy and best practice guidelines. Crucial to ReMO’s mission is its capacity in bringing together stakeholders from academia, practitioners, private sector, civil society, higher education management and researchers to actively and efficiently exchange input on experienced challenges, best and worst practices, knowledge gaps and needs.
